Default Price of Whitetail Doe Hunt

Wife was asking .. What you want for Father's Day ...

I was wondering what the " Going Price " is for a Whitetail Doe Hunt in the Hill Country .... I've seen some way overpriced $ 500 + Total and consider that .. Well ...... ( Void) for a simple Day Lease ..

Forgot to Mention ... Rifle Hunt.

What would a doe/hog hunt be worth if there was nice lodging and accommodations at the ranch? We had a guy bail on us, and we've tossed the idea of hog/doe hunts to recover the cost instead of adding a new member.

$300/doe is reasonable. You can likely find cheaper on day hunts without lodging/meals.

On my place they are $400, 2 day hunt, semi guided with lodging. If you shoot a buck first(1,200) you get a free doe.

if your not stuck on the hill country, stretch to West Texas or south of San Antone and can sometimes find deals for 200, 250 does. These come up quite a bit in season just have to watch for them, call around and ask.

Let us know the deals you come up with. I hear of these "deals" every year but never actually hear what actually goes down.. I just assume the places with great deals have hidden fees or something since no one ever gets back with me.

IMO one can't look at it as buying a doe. I mean you can IF you're killing one in a crowded HF where you show up, pull the trigger, pay and drive off to find a place to clean your game.

A decent place to stay runs $150+ per night so why would one expect to go on a doe hunt for $200 and kill a doe that also includes 2 nights lodging?

It needs to be looked at as a 2-3 day get away. A hunt.

I am always willing to trade a hunt. I have a small piece of land near Ft Hood. No large bucks this year, but plenty of does. I have one individual who is bringing his daughter out early for a doe. He is gonna get me in some flooded timber in Arkansas next year. Money is nice, but nothing beats being able to trade good times with others.

I don't mess with doe or javalina hunts on my ranch. It's not worth my time and trouble for what people want to pay. I'm pretty sure most ranchers feel the same way.

Reach out to Brandon in Hondo. He was super reasonable and is a local sheriff deputy that helps with ranch management around the area. He was charging around $200 per last year.
Brandon’s number is 830) 741-0529

I've reached out to a few ranches that advertise doe hunts and never heard back from any of them. Wanted to use it as more of a scouting trip to see if the place would be worth doing a buck hunt in the future.

I can easily see how they would not be worth the owners time unless it was a quick kill and the customer was gone.
